HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, Aug. 19, 2012: This year you could be very concerned about your security. You also often find yourself having to repeat conversations after you have them. If single, you might become very fussy when relating to potential suitors. If that trait emerges, you are not with the right person. If attached, don’t let talks about finances dominate your interactions. Virgo makes a great accountant.
A baby born today has a sun in Leo and a moon in Virgo, if born before 9:46 p.m. Afterward, the Moon will be in Libra.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • You tend to be so responsive that you could assume the role of many other people. Listen to your inner voice before approaching a conversation.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • • You seem to be more childlike and fun than you have been in a long time. As a result, you are better able to relate to other generations, as you draw out the inner child in them, too. For those of you at the right age, romance will bloom.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • Once you get into a lazy-day mood, it is difficult for you to break out of that mindset. A roommate or family member also might enjoy this laziness, which gives you time to hang out together.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • Make your round of Sunday calls or visits to friends and loved ones. As a family-oriented sign, you tend to think of these individuals as part of your extended family.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • • Make an effort to contact someone you have wanted to spend time with. A late brunch together will give you an opportunity to catch up on each other’s news.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • You finally slow down and decide to handle your finances, especially if you believe your budget is off. You also might want to make sure you are on solid ground before making a big purchase.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • • You act as if you have your vitality back. Count on this revived feeling as the beginning of a new sense of freeness. The next few months play into this change, and the veil of heaviness will start to disappear.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Listen to others with openness. You do not need to comment. In fact, you might want to rethink a situation, as you are getting new information. Keep your own counsel for the moment.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Friends interfere with your plans once more, but you love the attention. How you decide to handle this ongoing popularity needs to suit your life, too. Do not forget an important person who might need to speak to you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • Be more in touch with your needs and desires. Others make demands that you might not want to meet. Make it OK to let go.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • • Look at the whole picture and understand what is happening behind the scenes. You might be missing an important detail involving a friend or loved one at a distance.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • Someone close to you makes it clear that he or she wants greater closeness between you, which is what you also desire. Do not be shy or withdrawn. If you allow yourself to be vulnerable, you could experience a new level of closeness.
